Scott Gorham #LEGEND

The word legend is often over used in the world of rock 'n' metal, but after reading this I think you will agree that Scott Gorham is indeed a legend, and deserves legendary status.

Born William Scott Gorham on March 17, 1951 in Glendale, California he rose to international recognition as one of the "twin lead guitarists" for the Irish rock band, Thin Lizzy. Although not a founding member of Thin Lizzy, he served a continuous membership after passing an audition in 1974, joining the band at a time when the band's future was in doubt after the departures of original guitarist Eric Bell and his brief replacement Gary Moore. Gorham remained with Thin Lizzy until the band's breakup in 1984.

He and guitarist Brian Robertson, both joined the band at the same time, marking the beginning of the band's most critically successful period and together developed Thin Lizzy's twin lead guitar style while contributing dual backing vocals. Gorham is the band member with the longest membership after founders Brian Downey (drummer) and frontman and bass guitarist, Phil Lynott. Since 1996, Gorham has continued to perform with Thin Lizzy on guitar and backing vocals, having assembled various lineups after the death of band leader Lynott in 1986. In 2012, Gorham co-founded the Thin Lizzy spin-off band, Black Star Riders, in order to showcase new material.
